Coronavirus Update

In preparation for opening Avalon has been very busy setting up procedures which follow the UK Government guidelines these include hand & respiratory hygiene, cleaning/sanitising and safe food practices. We are doing everything we can to provide our guests with a very safe and healthy stay and we will continue to monitor the situation closely.

For the added safety of our guests there will no longer be a breakfast buffet – all food will be served directly to the table.

In the meantime we hope that you will all understand and appreciate the changes we have put in place and we look forward to welcoming you all very soon.
